I used to trade blues tapes through John W. with you over 15 years ago. Glad to read your review here and about your work on updating this legendary stand of shows. Tom L.

Jules: "What's the matter? Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort."
I can't believe there is not a higher grade, and more reviews & streams.
Yes, the SQ is B+ -- hiss, distant, w/low levels -- but it is not rough, rather more than decent enough. And yes it is a partial 2nd set (that's all there is folks of the SBD, whereas the aud is just awful), but it's a full-to-bursting 60 minutes, more than worthy to "fill it up and lower down and lower down again."
- TRUCK: sweet, funky jam! (note: when Dead finish main vocs @ 5:19, they don't come back home to repeat the final verse, it's straight-on-for-you jam-city)
- TOO: warming up for what's ahead for the hot heads
- Philo Stomp: mad-fucking-fun
- Space: not brain-pan frying but def melts the headcheese
- He's Gone Jam: Jerry's gone! & taking us along for the glide
JBG - the shredder!
I've been listening to the US 1972 shows the last two weeks, and what there is right here is way up there with the very best of them.

ORIGINALLY POSTED 12-30-07
These two shows were taped by a legendary local taper who taped every major and minor act through the Milwaukee area in the late 60's & 70's. He taped everything on BASF 120's and was very professional, seldom ever cutting songs. I was fortunate to aquire copies of the masters. The sound on these uncirculated copies is quite good, suffering a bit from the acoustical properties of the PAC, the Dead never quite figured out the room, which was designed for the Milwaukee Symphony Orch. Both nights featured lots of banter from the band between songs, quite amusing. The Playin' from the 24th may be one of first 20+ minute versions (Actually, 8-27-72 was)
Don't Ease 4:06
BT Wind 6:29
Bird Song 10:42
Box Of Rain 5:11
Big RR 3:39
Jack Straw 4:43
Big River 4:30
BIODTL 3:17 (16 bts)
Playin' 25:02 (tape flip at 19:38 little lost- flip before tape got to leader)
Ramble On 6:03
El Paso 4:24
Other One 9:49 (flip at 6:00)>
Philo Stomp 6:00>
Tiger Jam 8:06>
He's Gone 12:37>
Other One 1:15
short break for equipment repair @5:00
Casey Jones 6:00
JB Goode 3:37
total time 3:29.04
I have the first three hours of the 23rd,same source. The taper may have not brought enough tape with him on the first night, which cuts about 20 minutes into Dark Star. Since this guy didn't label or date anything, there's still a chance it will show up in one of the hundreds of tapes he had as we continue to go through them. The 23rd features an 18 minute Playin'
These are much better quality than circulating copies, I'll try to post these some day.
UPDATE 2-13-09 COMING SOON TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU!!!!!

A little rough, but if you're a fan of 10/18 (also a little rough, perhaps these two need to be DP'ed), I recommend it. They're both in the same vein and capture the band in about the same adventurous mood.
